How to simulate Galaxy Evolution: strengths and weaknesses of numerical techniques
Institute of Astronomy, University of Vienna,
Galaxy formation and evolution is one of the most challenging tasks in astrophysics. There is strongly increasing and substantial progress in this field not only due to the increase of telescope size and developments of new techniques providing observations allover the electromagnetic spectrum, but also the development of advanced computer architectures and of sophisticated numerical codes allow to tackle this problem from both sides and to link both research approaches to a fruitful progress in astrophysics. This review will not focus on the application of a single numerical method and the description of its result, but is instead aiming at providing an overview of different numerical tools on the basis of particle and grid schemes and to referring to important publications for the intersted reader.
